There is a lack of research conducted on women presidents of higher education institutions. This dissertation intended to address the gap in this research. Sister Peg Albert, OP, Ph.D., newly appointed president of Siena Heights University, has held several enriching leadership roles throughout her career in higher education. She has possessed strong leadership characteristics, attained many successes, has impacted several organizations and their constituents, and has shown that there is great potential that women leaders possess in order to make successful impacts by using the strength of their gender to tackle the challenges that Catholic higher education institutions face today. This case study and professional biography of Albert exhibited the array of leadership positions held throughout her career, the personal and professional journey that led her to her current role as a first-time university president, the stigmas of society that she has overcome as a woman leader in higher education, and the positive impact that she has made at her current organization, Siena Heights University.
